Of course if you're not sure if you're clean or not.. I don't know what you have/use for anti-virus, but Avira has always worked well for me. However, that won't find a lot of things, so I end up pairing it with MBAM and Spybot Search & Destroy. The last two typically find and remove everything I've encountered, usually MBAM is the one that does the heavy lifting.. I just run Spybot as a follow-up to make sure no crumbs were left behind.


Thanks I will try them windows defender says my system is clean.

Such a shame if it dosnt happen all that power and potenionaly millions of machines that will be avalible to use


Why should they my computer can't even be supplied with ap work units at the moment because ap are constantly running out and it wasn't too long ago I would constantly run out of mb work units.

Or speaking in a more common language...

< 90 F - Safe for crunching
> 90 F - Warm - Keep an eye at the temps.
>100 F - Hot - Slow down you cruncher
>110 F - Hot as Hell - Better stop crunching
>120 F - You are close of an ET star and is not safe for humans or hosts.



Those temps should be in c not f

In the 70's the us was going metric we even had metric signs on the interstate but it never went through I think too much cost involved. I worked in a medical lab when I was in the USAF we used metrics there even in the military.

I CANNOT understand the fahrenheit scale...


Nor should you, it's a ridiculous scale. 0°F is based on the freezing point of a brine solution that exists only in a laboratory. I'm not sure what the upper end was based on, but I think it had something to do with setting the human body temperature at 96° for whatever reason (it's since been readjusted). Unfortunately it's still easier for me to think in terms of Fahrenheit because I grew up with it, and all the weather reports here are still in °F.

212 is the boiling point of water and that is not the upper limit we use it because it is the standard in the us. Standing water will freeze at 32. All of this is at sea level.

I no longer have a functioning air conditioning unit. It reached 94°F today. My machines did not go off.

NO EXCUSES!!

My ac went out for 3 weeks and the temps inside went up to if not higher at 106 did not slow down my cruncher.

My cruncher consumes about 700 watts or so yet the heat out does not equal the heat from a 700 watt space heater it is considerable less.

How do you know that your "cruncher consumes about 700 watts"
Did you measure it in real time?
It may really consume only 200 watts.

(If your PSU is rated '700 W' this does not mean your computer really "consumes about 700 watts"
The same: if your stereo music system say "total RMS power of 100 W" this does not mean you use that power (Volume to Max) all the time.
)



I used a psu web site that determines what size psu I need. I have a 1000 watt psu. I estimate it to be 700 watts I use. i7 920 cpu, 2 460 cards, 1 ssd, 1 hdd, 1fdd, 2 dvd writers, 1 water cooler and fan, 4 180 led fans, 2 240 led fans, 6 tri channel sticks at 4 gb each for 24 gb memory at 8-8-8- timings, asus p6t mb, 2 usb sticks, wireless (usb) keyboard and mouse, usb printer, led 27 in monitor, battery backup, I thinks that equals about 700 watts. I used to use 750 watt psu but they would not hold up so I went with 1000 watts psu. I crunch 24/7.

I tell you what you can heat with your pc and I will heat with my space heater.

I am not talking about the physics of entropy. What I am talking about is how people supposedly heat their homes with a few pc. My cruncher consumes about 700 watts or so yet the heat out does not equal the heat from a 700 watt space heater it is considerable less. I can put my hand behind the computer case it will not burn my hand and it does not feel like a 700 watt space heat as a space heater will burn my hand when placed close up to it. Space heaters have caused fires and it takes the fire department to put out such fire. I have never heard of the fire department putting out a pc fire. Have any one ever worked in a physics lab and done entropy experiments? Like in a voltage regulator 12 volts in and 5 volts out and the excess electricity is converted into heat it is wasted electricity. I know I can not heat my living room much less the desk area by my pc it simply will not happen I need a space heater to heat my living room not my pc heating my living room. My pc might warm my hand but it certainly will not heat my working area of my pc.

If all a pc did is convert it's emery into heat it would be very inefficient but pc are very efficient there fore less heat is produced much like a florescent light bulb that's all it is too it. You can not heat a room or make toast or light my cigar with a pc it is just too efficient. Now when I was in the USAF they had those old computers that used reel to reel computers the size of refrigerators and they had them by the dozen crammed into a room that had to be air conditioned because of the heat they produced but my pc in my living room produces very little heat my appliances such as my plasma TV and my clothes dryer and my refrigerator produce way more heat than my pc and yet they do not heat my hall or kitchen. The drier would heat some if I do not vent it outside.

I can not heat my living room with my cruncher but I can with a space heater. A computer does not produce very much heat certainly can not heat a room. I suggest that solar radiation is what is heating your room because the computer did not heat it in the winter and along comes summer and now the room is warm.

One summer my ac went out and it got 106 in my living room where my cruncher is and it kept on crunching no problem. The way I understand it if my computer uses 300 watts to crunch it is not the same as 300 watts of heat because all the electricity is being used not to produce heat but to crunch with some heat as a by product. Similar to a 100 watt incandescent light bulb produces more heat than 100 watt florescent bulb which produces no heat. They both use 100 watts electricity one produces heat and the other does not. Computes are much the same they do all kinds of stuff but their design is not to produce heat. A 1500 watt computer does not produce as much heat as a 1500 watt space heater.

Have you tried a fastner store where all they sell is screws here where I live we have Valley Fastners is where I go to find my screws.

No, but then all this area has is the Home Depot store over in Barstow CA, they forced all the other hardware stores out of business and it's not a full sized Home Depot either, it's somewhere between 1/3rd and 2/3rds the size of a normal store, plus I don't know what the sizes are really, I've heard 4 are #0 and the others might be 4-40 or something, I have two phillips screwdrivers, a #2 screwdriver and a smaller type, I'd have to buy the heatsink, but I'm not sure when I'll be able to do that, maybe in July or in August, it just depends on what is going on around here, today I'm going to the Doctor in Barstow, that's for some other thread, but then nearly everything is in nearby Barstow, except Me, usually that is...


Home Depot is such a piss poor hardware store it is no way they could put any hardware stores out of business here. My fastner store sells all types of fasnters, tools and adheasives no way Lowes or Home Depot could compete with them with all the industrial companies here that have maintenance departments that no Home Depot could supply I guess it payes off to be in a heavily industrialized area like where I live. My car broke down in Charleston WV one day while I was traveling to Ohio and as being the capitol of WV they had no fastner store where I need a special bolt and even the Ford Dealier did not have the part but I had to make do with what they had. I guess coming from a heavy industrialized area does have it advantages. I got the correct part in Dayton Oh which does have a fastner store.

You make no sense.


Yeah to some people I don't make sense but to more people they can understand me and I have no problem communicating to them what so ever.

I have been crunching sine 1999 have a rac of 35,000 and a credit of 25 million and that is with one cruncher so I crunch I use my 4 tons of ac to my domicle cool. So it is possible to crunch in the summer time I do not sacriface my laundry or cooking or watching tv in the summer so not my cruncher either.


I guess all of my appliances are more energy efficient than yours...My cruncher gives off way more heat than my t.v.'s, etc, etc.


My cigerate lighter puts out more heat than my cruncher. All my appliances are effiecnt and are new and up to date.
